Are you making preparations to visit Ghana?Well, among the things you shouldn't forget to bring is your appetite. When it comes to food, Ghanaians will give you the most to talk about. Ghanaian cooks never cease to give their best and tourists keep the ratings flowing.
Ghanaian food makes everyone drool; don't be surprised if find yourself trying really hard to keep your tongue in your mouth.
There's a lot to be learned from a group of people's meal preparation methods. Their culinary skills represent different values, practices, and behaviors, and the ingredients, cooking methods, and energy they put into feeding themselves go beyond nutrition.
As a result, learning about and playing with local traditional foods also offers cultural education. The distribution of food crops is typical of traditional Ghanaian cuisine.
Due to the widespread availability of tropical produce such as maize, beans, millet, plantains, and cassava, most ethnic groups use these ingredients to create delectable dishes.
A starchy staple food is normally served with either a sauce or a soup/stew in Ghanaian dishes. Due to Ghanaians' love of chilli peppers, the food can be very spicy (referred to and pronounced as pepeh).
Ginger, garlic, onion, shallots, and fresh tomatoes are the key ingredients and flavorings in most local dishes. Palm oil is used to cook or fry almost any dish.
Begin with a simple dish like kelewele, fried yam, or jollof rice. These three famous items can be found on the menus of any chop house or even most restaurants.
Fear not, vegetarians: Ghana is one of the few places in the world where you can easily find delicious vegetarian options.
